Since its inception as the Classical School nearly 200 years ago, SUNY New Paltz has nurtured a reputation for creativity and a spirit of inquiry.
We equip students with knowledge, skills and a sense of purpose that empower them to become educators, innovators, explorers, scientists, engineers, artists and entrepreneurs.
Our history has been marked by visionary leadership, the endeavors of our faculty, staff and students, the achievements of our alumni and philanthropic support from those who believe in our mission. Today, SUNY New Paltz is widely recognized as one of the finest public institutions in the country, providing an accessible education to students from diverse backgrounds.
Building on our accomplishments and driven by our aspirations, we launch Soaring Higher—The Campaign for SUNY New Paltz. The first comprehensive campaign in the College’s history, this multi-year initiative seeks $23 Million in philanthropic support for strategic priorities across campus:
Provide Opportunity: Scholarships & Experiential Learning ($11.5 Million)
Provide students with access to higher education and opportunities to expand their learning in real-world situations.
Build Capacity: Program Support ($8 Million)
Expand new and existing programs that provide compelling and distinct opportunities for our students.
Expand Possibilities: The Fund for New Paltz ($3.5 Million)
Create learning opportunities that awaken the potential in every student and enrich the experiences of our students and our community.
